Upside down picture while viewing DVD movies!!

by kimmyhead_oicu812 / June 11, 2011 6:09 PM PDT

Hello. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the correct forum or not..Hope someone can help, cuz its making me nuts! First my vitals: I have a Dell Optiplex 745 computer and running Windows XP Prof. SP3. I've not been able to watch a DVD movie thru Wind. Media Plyr (11), as it tells me I'm missing the 'codecs' needed to do so. I downloaded a program a family member uses, as I found it to be simple and it WORKED. That programs website is and is also referred to as, "Windows Essential Codec Pack", or Media Player Classic-Home Edition 1.4. The download seemed to work until a DVD is put in drive. The picture/movie starts just fine, but the picture is UPSIDE DOWN! Any ideas where I went wrong or what I can do to correct this? I find their website to be kind of vague as far as 'help' of sorts goes...Thanks for your suggestions.

My video driver allows for 90/180/270 degrees rotation of the image. Does yours? Then choose 180 for viewing the DVD.
